What is BadgeStudio?
BadgeStudio is Smith & Warren's professional concept badge design service. BadgeStudio utilizes a consultative approach and a series of incremental design steps to turn your badge idea into a unique custom badge.
How does BadgeStudio work?
The BadgeStudio process is broken down into six transparent and exciting steps.
This step lets us learn about you, your department, and your community. The consultation is the foundation of creating a design that properly reflects your department.
Once the consultation is complete, a Smith & Warren team member will provide you with a detailed design and development cost quote.
Most BadgeStudio projects begin by putting pencil to paper. Using the information gathered from the consultation, a design team member will begin crafting a hand-drawn concept sketch.
Once the concept sketch is approved, the design comes to life with full-color graphic art.
3D Graphic Render
The two-dimensional color design becomes a 3D graphic model so you can see all the fine details, depth, and sculpted elements that will be reproduced in metal to become your new badge.
Steel Die Creation
The digital becomes physical. Your new concept design is precisely carved into a steel die, which will be the starting point for producing your new badges.
Who is this for?
BadgeStudio is an investment. If your department wants to create a genuinely original badge and outfit 50 or more members, creating a concept-designed badge with a service like BadgeStudio might be a good option for your department.
How long does it take?
We recommend allowing 3-6 months for the BadgeStudio experience. This is a wide range, but we want to ensure that you are not rushed.
